Wilson’s World: Getting Medieval at the 25th Year of the Carolina Renaissance Festival

The 25th Carolina Renaissance Festival is open weekends through November 21st.

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – The Carolina Renaissance Festival has been taking us back in time for 25 years and for a lot of those years Wilson has been taking us behind the scenes.  He was there again today to talk with some of our favorites and introduce us to some of the new people you will see at this year’s Ren Fest.  He also ran into his old and very dead friend….Dead Bob!

New this year visitors can visit the Live Mermaids exhibit where they will enjoy the enchanted Fairies of the Sea inside a 30,000 lb aquarium.  And if you enjoy a good pub crawl,  The  Renaissance Men can take you on a medieval pub crawl through 4 select village pubs.  For pub ticket and reservation information click the link HERE.

Of course you can see the Renaissance Festival’s regulars including The Angels, knights & jousting. Musicians CRAIC (a Celtic rock band) and the high energy Reelin’ Rogues will all be there.  Enjoy shopping at the Artisan Marketplace, strolling minstrels, falconry and great food throughout Fairhaven Village.

This weekend enjoy Celtic Music Weekend, October 27th and 28th they celebrate Halloween Daze and Spooky Knights.  There is something special every weekend!

The Carolina Renaissance Festival is open weekends from 10am until 5:30pm now through November 21st. For more info on events, directions, parking and ticket prices check out their website carolina.renfestinfo.com.
